Stockport Council’s libraries are offering a bigger and better eBook and audiobook download service in partnership with Greater Manchester Libraries and BorrowBox.
The BorrowBox app makes it easy to browse, borrow and read or listen to your local library’s eBooks and eAudiobooks anywhere and everywhere. The service is free and there is an even a larger collection of both eBooks and audiobooks for bookworms to download with the new partnership.
The BorrowBox service is available on both Apple and Android devices as a mobile app, allowing users to enjoy eBooks and eAudiobooks across devices. Install it at the Apple Store for iPhones and iPads or the Google Play Store for Android devices. Once you’ve installed the app, search for Stockport Libraries in the ‘Library’ field, and log in using your library membership card number and 4-digit PIN.
Going digital with BorrowBox
Stockport Council is pleased to announce the new partnership with Greater Manchester Libraries and the app, allowing more content to be available to the public.
– borrow up to 5 eBooks and 4 eAudiobooks at a time, free of charge, each for up to 21 days
– read or listen on many digital devices
– reserve eBooks and eAudiobooks that are currently on loan to other customers
– renew your loans (you can also renew a title once, even if another customer has reserved it)
– return eBooks and eAudiobooks early or let them return automatically at the end of the loan period – no late return fees
Councillor David Sedgwick, Stockport Council’s Cabinet Member for Reform and Governance, said:
“BorrowBox gives Stockport residents the opportunity to download their favourite books no matter where they are and at any time of the day or night. There is a great selection of titles available in the app and I hope people will have a go at it.”
The Libraries also offer a service for Comic lovers, with Comic Plus allowing graphic novel fans access to popular books. Zinio is another service offered by Stockport Libraries, which allows users to read full versions of their favourite digital magazines. For more information visit this website.
